1. I say everything wrong. Apparently my major is not called “Anglish” and line is not pronounced “lawn.” I didn’t think I had an accent — I was raised by two native Ohioans — but ever since coming to Boston University, I’ve become increasingly aware that I have an accent that could be placed in […]

It’s that time of year again, the time when everyone flocks to their nearest drug store and paces through the aisles in search of a nirvana that can only come around once a year.

1. “Yes! Allston! Rat City, let’s do this! I’m ready!” 2. “Oh god, what was the vague furry blur that just ran by in front of me. If that was an actual rat, this entire evening is canceled.” 3. “Cool, a guy on a skateboard! I love skateboarding, it’s a very low-key way to show […]

1. Trader Joe’s Oh Joe, I don’t know what I would do without you. You make off-brand seem like the best thing a product can be, and I appreciate your commitment to inexpensive food that doesn’t make me feel like I’m living in the Soviet bloc when I eat it. Everyone loves Trader Joe’s grocery. […]

Most people at Boston University have a vague memory of their guided tour. They walked a lot, didn’t pay attention during the spiel on the Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center and were very confused when shown the so-called BU Beach. I think it’s fair to say that the tour really only skims the surface of […]

Okay, I have to admit something at the start of this piece, at the risk of being shamed by friends and family alike, excommunicated from polite society and left to wander the savage wild (otherwise known as Chestnut Hill).
